I see he put a BIG gas tank on the left side. Best guess is he's trying to compensate for the weight of the engine all being on the right hand side.
I can tell you that left handers will be "exciting" if the tank gets to be near empty.
Wheel base is too short as well but hat's off o someone just wanting to have some fun.

The gas tank on the side is not for gas! Its for the oil tank and battery. I think the gas tank is inside the rear of the body. It shows about 1.34 in.

Your right, missed that. I think some people have too much time and money on their hands, just the same.

Unless .... we call it art ?
